This lessons objectives:
As always, there are a few different ways to do this. I will be using the rebate plane in this video, however Rob chose to use the Shoulder Plane in his student series. So please watch both videos if you want a full understanding of either method.
Click the images below to see supporting material helping you with this part of the project.
My favourite shoulder plane is the Veritas Medium Shoulder Plane as I find it easy to use, very versatile, and has some very useful features. If you're interested in owning one of these planes, you need to watch this video first!
I shared the importance of flushing up the blade with the side of the plane in the video, however there is one other very important step to setting up a shoulder plane that is easy to overlook. No, this is not clickbait, it's essential knowledge that's easy to miss!
Have you got the plans yet?
